When it comes to Autumn cooking, pumpkins pretty much rank supreme.

We’re not opposed to it either - in fact, we’re all about the craze. That’s why we’ve compiled our top 5 sweet and savory favorites for your curious pumpkin palate

It’s hard to believe that Fall is officially here. Between pumpkin spiced everything and an undeniable urge to pull out all the scarves and booties (speaking to you ladies), the delightfully fragrant and perfectly chilly season full of soups, stews, and crock pot suppers is underway.
And with the Autumn time air also comes a tradition that’s rooted in Germany but often celebrated by many here; Oktoberfest. Beer slinging festivals with pretzel and sausage stations are pretty common in big cities and small towns alike.
There’s no doubt we’ll be celebrating in our own culinary kinda way as we get further into Fall - but for now, we’re starting with an Oktoberfest Sausage sale and a deliciously easy weeknight kinda meal with those snappy and succulent sausages.
Make it tonight...or make it for breakfast this weekend with a fried egg on top - sure, it’s not the authentic German thing to do...but it’s a spectacular addition (trust us on this one).
